The first fallout from a Vanity Fair piece on Ovitz's fall:
"It was the goal of these people [the "gay mafia"] to eliminate me," Ovitz told Burrough.
"You're not serious," Vivendi Universal Entertainment CEO Barry Diller told Burrough. "Wow. He said that on the record? Wow ... Wow. I'm stunned. I'm stunned."
"It's as if he has no self-knowledge, no realization about the last six years. The gay mafia? It's remarkable," said the head of a major agency.
